Wedding Registries and Home Deliveries

In the weeks and months leading up to my wedding, I’ve gotten a delivery from my UPS man quite frequently. In the last 2-3 weeks, it’s been everyday.

I’m not exaggerating. I’ve literally seen that man every Mon-Fri. We’re so damn familiar now, I feel like I should be going to his first BBQ next summer.

It’s been interesting getting all this stuff delivered that are wedding gifts. We’re not using our wedding gifts before the big day, so there are just boxes piling up everywhere.

And of course, there are the things we’ve purchased for the wedding. The biggest purchases are our gifts to our parents and wedding party. There’s so many of them!

Then I got a FedEx delivery. I had to re-order 2 bridesmaid dresses, and they’re being delivered through FedEx. Those assholes attempted 3 times in less than 36 hrs to deliver the package.
The first was early as hell on Fri morning before I got home from work. Who delivers a package at 7 in the morning! WTF? And then they brought the packages on Saturday at 8 and 4. We weren’t home either times because we have a life. What ever happened to delivering packages when folks are actually home? Ugh!

It just made me miss my UPS guy. When I called FedEx to pick up my package myself, turns out they’re not open on Sunday or Monday. They officially suck in my book.

I’m just glad that I won’t have to worry about deliveries shortly. I’m getting everything sent to my parents’ house while we’re on our honeymoon. I wonder if my UPS guy will miss seeing my smiling face every morning, ha ha.
